Limited Trax Rarities

Trax has again announced a very limited number of models they’ve ‘found’ after the move into new premises. “When each new model is released by Trax one carton is put aside to provide replacements for any faulty goods returned and this stock is usually not included in stocktake. Our last count at our new premises unearthed this stock which because of it’s age has become rare and valuable.” ~ Trax The sale ends September 29, so be quick! (orders can only be done by phone, so visit www.topgear.com.au for details)Read More
